Chairman Hayes' Statement on Sen. Tillis' Vote in Support of Trump
RALEIGH, NC - Following the Senate vote on the resolution regarding the emergency declaration by President Trump to address the border, North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Robin Hayes released the following statement:
"The North Carolina Republican Party thanks Senators Tillis and Burr for their votes to support President Trump's plan to secure our southern border. Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the Democrats said this vote was a referendum on the crisis at the border and the people of North Carolina made it clear this is a priority.
"While Senator Tillis expressed his concerns about setting a precedent that a future liberal Democrat President could exploit, we applaud him for working with the White House on ensuring necessary changes are made to the National Emergencies Act. We look forward to supporting President Trump and Senator Tillis as they work to secure our borders and fix the broken National Emergencies Act."
